Okay, let's be honest here. I'm writing this several days in advance. I imagine we'll still be eating Christmas left-overs tonight, not soup. But....
I thought I'd share this recipe for ham and black eyed pea soup from Betty Crocker. It's made in the slow cooker and will most likely be our New Year's Day meal.
You just gotta eat black eyed peas on New Year's Day! I normally make Hoppin' John which the family tolerates but most don't overly enjoy. I thought I'd try something new this year. Besides, it will be a good way to use up those left over ham bits I'm sure we'll have.
Do you eat black eyed peas on New Year's Day? Do you have other New Year's Day traditions?
Growing up, we always took our tree down on New Year's Day. Never before, and never ever after. It was the law in our household. I've kept up the tradition. It doesn't matter what else is happening that day. The tree comes down and we will eat black eyed peas. We definitely need the luck they will bring this coming year!
